About Theo Koffler

Born in Toronto, Theo is a mother, public speaker, author, entrepreneur and philanthropist. From 1979–1993, she was the cofounder and VP of Super Pharm Israel Ltd., Israel’s largest pharmacy chain. When she was diagnosed with LUPUS, she turned away from her career to start Mindfulness Without Borders, a charitable organization providing mindfulness-based educational programs to youth, health professionals, educators and first responders. While at MWB, Theo co-authored the Mindfulness Ambassador Program, the Mindful@Work series, The RETHiNK Card Deck and THE RETHiNK KiT, an online digital literacy resource centered on social-emotional learning for educators and their students. In 2015, The Huffington Post recognized Mindfulness Without Borders as an organization providing innovative solutions to help shape the next decade. In 2022, Theo gifted MWB’s intellectual property to The Global MINDS Collective for new generational leadership.

Most recently, Theo launched Well-Being Essentials to confront the global mental health crisis. Focused on providing individuals with new pathways of understanding around mindful living, this website offers free resources, tools and practices to impact human flourishing.

Theo has served on several boards and committees, including those for the Mindful Society Global Institute, The Goldie Hawn Foundation, the Center for Therapeutic Riding in Israel and the Garrison Institute, where she co- authored the first-ever mapping report on Contemplation and Education in K–12 Educational Settings in the United States.

In her spare time, she mentors young entrepreneurs to equip them with the strategies they need for success. She finds inspiration through cooking, Tai Chi and spending time in nature. Theo resides in Tiburon, California.
